Kaizer Chiefs defender Tshepo Masilela would like to see the outfit turn FNB Stadium into a fortress.
The outfit will host two key matches at the venue, starting on Saturday against Free State Stars in the Absa Premiership and then Bloemfontein Celtic in the second leg of the MTN8.
A trip to the Peter Mokaba Stadium to face Polokwane City on Tuesday is sandwiched between those encounters.
Chiefs have already started on a good note at home, managing to come back from 2-0 down to beat Maritzburg United 5-3 in the opening match of their MTN8 title defence.
“We know that the start hasn’t been bad but it also hasn’t been great.” Masilela said.
“It has been okay so far. We would like to win all our home games. We want to get all three points against Free State Stars and get going. We should improve defensively. We conceded too many goals in these few games. Going forward we also need to score goals. We can improve in all departments.”
The outfit has played in front of impressive crowds in their two away matches at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium against Chippa United and Phunya Sele Sele at Free State Stadium. But those numbers haven’t been forthcoming at home, with matters made worse by the gigantic 90-000 seater FNB Stadium.
“It’s nice to play in front of a packed stadium,” Masilela said. “Away the support has been great, hopefully the numbers will also increase in our home games.”
